well, consider it a new one on me! 8-)
we have seen rare but occassional 90-degree rotated iphone (esp) video from when camera was recording in "portrait mode", and maybe 2 month ago fixed that. (iphone video and images nicely put a metadata bit in indicating rotation instead of actually rearranging the pixels -- ideal for best quality).

.. and we were properly noticing your video was 180 degrees shifted. but when i did that fix i had only seen 90 degrees rotated, and figured we wouldnt ever seen 360, and 180 was unlikely (i'm not really sure how that would happen! ah! maybe it was the "front facing camera" in some kind of "mirror" mode?)

anyway, trying a rederive now with horizontal flipping when 180 rotation is set....

sorry about that, but thanks for noticing and bringing it up to make the Archive a better place!

[edit -- I believe it's a fixed up!]
